Fantasy Fudge

What would Christmas be without fudge? We have been making this recipe with my Mom ever since I can remember. It comes right from the back of the marshmallow creme package. It is chocolaty, creamy, delicious, and pretty easy. We usually make some with nuts and some without, just to please everyone. All of the ingredients are really simple and it makes 3 lbs. Now the only problem will be getting it out of the house before you eat it all!

Fantasy Fudge

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine (we usually use real butter)
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 12-oz. (340 g) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 7-oz. (198 g) jar Kraft Marshmallow creme
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Traditional method:Combine sugar, margarine and milk in heavy 2-1/2 quart saucepan; bring to full rolling bail, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate till melted. Add marshmallow creme, nuts & vanilla beat till blended. Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Let cool and cut into 1-inch squares.

Microwave method:Microwave margarine in 4-quart microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) 1 minute or until melted. Add sugar and milk; mix well. Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or until mixture begins to boil, stirring after 3 minutes. Mix well; scrape bowl. Continue microwaving on HIGH 5-1/2 minutes; stir after 3 minutes. Stir in chips until melted. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Cool at room temperature; cut into squares. Makes 3 pounds.

shut up!! This is totally the fudge recipe my family loves! My dad has been making fantasy fudge for years. In fact, we just bought a case of kraft marshmallow creme and Travis told me its time to start producing mass quantities of fudge. :) I love fantasy fudge. :)

Seriously, it's the best. I even tried a Paula Deen recipe and sorry Paula but this is way better! I'm just dying thinking about this. Between Brinley and I we can put a serious dent in this fudge!
